Bumblebees and the Sweet Peas

A bumblebee with gossamer wings extracting nectar from a Cupani Sweet Pea in Cathy Hatfields Fountain Valley GardenAlas, the sweet peas are past, gone to seed, and wilting and mildewing, time to rip them out.  But the bees aren’t finished getting nectar from them. I caught this fellow this morning.  What lovely gossamer wings!

And here is a close up:
